A good sound system is capable of raising the listening experience to new heights with its sound quality. Similarly, a bad one consigns it to the depths of mediocrity. A good sound system has three components; loudness, clarity of sound and fidelity. Take away any one of these and the experience is just ‘regular’ rather than ‘exceptional’. JBL is well-known and trusted name in professional and home audio systems. The name JBL is associated with quality, with no compromises. The JBL Cinema SB150 is a 2.1 channel stereo sound system with a difference.

It doesn’t feature the regular 2.1 configurations. Instead, it comprises of one subwoofer unit and one soundbar which acts like the satellite speakers. To top it off, the subwoofer is compact and completely wireless.The JBL Cinema SB150 delivers crystal-clear, distortion-free sound, even at the highest volume levels. It accepts inputs from Aux In and wirelessly over Bluetooth. There are no other input options. The JBL Cinema SB150 is available at a price of Rs. 18,900/- in India. Let us take a closer look at this speaker system through this review.

DESIGN:

The JBL Cinema SB150 is a 2.1 channel speaker system like no other. Instead of two satellite speakers, there is one long soundbar, which renders the mids, highs, and lows. It is built of acoustic-friendly materials to extract maximum performance out of it. The compact subwoofer is completely wireless and can be placed in a position to deliver best audio output. It is a tall, slender box with a big round speaker grill featured on the side. The soundbar is a long pill-shaped bar with rounded edges. The entire front side of the soundbar is covered with a grill which is rounded all over.

It has two rubberized feet at the bottom. It can also be mounted on the wall with the help of the included mounting brackets. Unconventionally, all the controls of the system are located on the soundbar and not on the subwoofer as is the norm. There are six buttons located at the front edge of the soundboard; Power Button, Source Select, Volume Down, Volume Up, Mute and Bluetooth Pairing button. Overall, the design review of the JBL Cinema SB150 highlights the sleek and minimalistic design language which accords a premium look to the entire setup.
